of this strategy used in germany, of these national manufacturing innovation hubs and i think that ising? we're -- i think that's something we're going to look to promote in a second term and expand further. >> over here. microphone's coming. thank you paul with every child matters. i applaud you for the comments about the need to the to have us fighting against money for children versus money for research and other vital needs in the domestic discretionary bumming. the question is where do we find more revenue? have you considered taxes on stock transfers or transactions or other innovative carbon taxes other kinds of approaches to find new revenue that will be possible for us to not fight amongst ourselves for important resources? >> well, it's going to shock many of you to know that i'm not here to make news on revenues. we are busy fighting right now to make sure we have a budget agreement that's very balanced, and i think that's part of the revenues together with smart entitlement savings. the type of balance is to ma
2007. but prior to this, ambassador burt was the u.s. ambassador to the federal republic of germany from 85-89. and before that worked in the state department assistant secretary of state for european and canadian affairs from 1983-85. and before that was the direct of political military affairs in the department of state. so he, along with his colleagues, has a long and imminent involvement in these issues. and, finally, last but not least, ambassador matlock known to many of us, career ambassador. he's been holding a series of academic posted i'm not going to list them all, since 1991. but during his 35 years in the american foreign service, 1956-91, he served as ambassador to the soviet union from 1987-1991. as special assistant to the president for national security affairs, and senior director for european and soviet affairs on the national security staff from 83-86. and as ambassador to czechoslovakia from 81-83. and i will not go over the rest of his eminent and long career in the interest of time. but i just did want to give you a brief recap of all three of them. and, of co
. think about countries like china and germany. they're continuing to expand their wind industries in the renewable energy sectors. if we don't support our wind energy industry here and the wind manufacturing facilities we're effectively offshoring and exporting those jobs. our global competitors aren't hesitating. they're encouraging wind power development. and they know the longer we fail to act, literally the more wind they can steal from our sails. so enough is enough. this is an american industry. it needs to continue to be an american industry. but we risk everything, literally everything if we let the p.t.c. lapse in 18 days. so let's focus on this made in america potential. through it we can obtain energy independence. we can ensure energy security and we keep jobs in new mexico and colorado, minnesota, new york, every state in our great country. so let's not wait any longer. let's continue to build this clean energy economy right here in the united states. mr. president, let's do it today. the p.t.c. equals jobs. let's pass it as soon as possible. thank you, mr. president.
by about 2029 -- to outgrow skwroeupl -- to outgrow germany by 2029. none of us is going to suggest that every issue with respect to russia has been resolved. we know there are still points of tension, and some of them in the foreign policy area are very relevant today. for instance, over syria. we understand that. we hope that at recent events, syria may be moving russia and the united states closer in terms of our thinking. but it is only a good thing to bring russia into a rules-based system with mechanisms for peaceful, transparent dispute resolution. there is no debate. and i think the chair knows this full well, that the very tragic and senseless death of anticorruption lawyer sergei magnitsky who died while in russian custody, that those events are simply unacceptable. they're appalling. and it highlights a human rights problem that has grown in its scope, not diminished. it's one we hope to be able to resolve with good relationships and good discussions. senator cardin, a sponsor of that legislation, in the house of the senate is going to speak shortly about it, and i will l
, germany throughout and other countries as well. they are anxious as you know, they are anxious as to how this will work. we have said let's give it more time, let's work through the substitution of compliance issues, but they have been excellent. >> thank you. my time is expired. i yield back. thank you mr. chairman. >> thank you, mr. chairman and chairman gensler and director cook for being here. right that there is a different timetable that has been adopted by the sec and the cftc and compare of all requirements? >> you are right that we were given an easier task because we are just a future in the swaps regulator and they have such a broad portfolio. as we have completed about 80% of the rules. we have one year to complete the task but here we are two and a half years later. >> is that going to be confusing for the firms and costly for? >> there may be challenges. the swaps that we overseas, interest-rate swaps and physical commodities swaps and credit industries represent about 95% of the marketplace used across this country the securities based swaps are not only a smaller part of
, particularly in germany has been very successful in training their workforce. we'd like to push into areas that are really going into training, health care and health care i.t. it's an area which is growing in terms of job growth that has very low formalized training that can bring in a people into the workforce. and we are calling for a million apprenticeships next year. so that is the kind trying to find ways to manage directly what employers are looking for with the skill training set. >> that's great. thank you so much everyone. i think thanks to the panel. i think jocelyn will come up and give us a few more closing remarks. >> i everybody. that will be concluding our discussion this morning. wanted to thank you all for attending and for asking such great questions and voting in our poll. and also to our panelists, who have done a great job, having a dialogue here with us in engaging us in some really important issues facing our country. so thank you all again, and hope to see you at the next heartland monitor poll release. have a good day, thank you.

of the will. major nato players such as germany did not play. what really turned out to be the case is absent the united states were anything but a very small, almost counterinsurgency operations in places like sierra leone ore and liberia, nato cannot really deploy and operate. it does not have the capabilities. it does not have the specialized systems like air refueling tankers and all that. the u.s. at to provide most of the curls -- cruise missiles and after a few is most of the air to ground bonds. and so even if you were to say that we're going to renegotiate the treaty to it's going to be a decade, probably to before nato countries absent the u.s. at the capabilities to really control things along the mediterranean. nothing earlier. >> host: let me give you a twitter. deadlines are often a factor in going over budget and-unforeseen consequences. >> there are all kinds of negative unforeseen consequences. the trouble is in the original pricing the unforeseen is not foreseen. because what we have none of the past seven, eight years is the program is over budget. rare exceptions. every pr
to radically boost use of the partnership model that a lot of european countries, particularly in germany have been very successful in training the workforce and advanced manufacturing area. we'd like to push areas going to united states, health care and health care i.t. is an area growing in terms of job growth, but has very low formalized training that you bring enough people in. we are calling for a million of amidships next year. so that is trying to find ways to match directly what employers are looking for but the skills training sets. the >> that's great. thank you so much, everyone. i think jocelyn is going to, up. >> hi, everybody. but that we will consider session this morning. went to thank you all for attending and asking such great questions of voting in our pools and also to our panelists have done a great job having a dialogue here with us in engaging with us on some important issues facing our country. to thank you all again and hope to see you at the next release. thank you.

behaved heroically during that period. then they were evacuated to germany. >> when do we evacuate our people in tripoli? >> it was within a few hours. >> the time let's really get confused here. i think people we to your chameleons land. there's a great deal of time that evolved in between. i'm not blaming you to because you two really shouldn't be here today. secretary of state should be here today. she can't be here. i understand she's injured and i respect that. but there's something wrong here. the american people should wonder what happened that night and why it took so long. before that, why would we pull the best trained people we have out of an area that is called -- it was a dangerous spot, a high risk, high threat and we made it a soft target. we actually emboldened those folks there that night to say, guys. you know who we replaced the team with? libyan nationals at $4 an hour unarmed. and that's the way we respond to high risk areas. that's how we respond to areas that are volatile? that's how we respond to areas in the response possible? the same time we were doing this,
and wounding specialist ian placek, who is currently undergoing medical treatment in germany. and we pray for his full recovery. today we honor the lives of sergeant first class lindy and specialist orguard. our thoughts and our programs arour prayers arewith their fams as well. sergeant first class lindy of devil's lake, north dakota, led a distinguished military career since enlist not guilty the north dakota national guard in 1990. during the course of his career, he served with the north dakota national guard as well as the united states army and the montana national guard. he earned several recognitions for his valor, including the bronze star medal, purple heart, army commendation medal and army good conduct medal. since 2009, he worked as a full-time instructor with the north dakota national guard's 164th regional training institute camp grafton training center in devil's lake. sergeant first class lindy was a devoted and selfless leader as well as a committed family man. he enjoyed spending time with his family and friends. and he is survived by his wife adrienne and four children
europe, both countries, as well as germany and finland, each with different points of view. also all the common view, they've got to find a way to work out all their differences to save the hero. and i believe they will. you can just see it, feel it, read between the lines, they are going to find a way. they will muddle through but they will find a way to get it done. these countries are also looking to us to be. and we need to lead. europe shows us the danger of uncertainty. we know the uncertainty just in this country. uncertainty leads businesses sitting at the sidelines. drags down investment economy, human capital, companies will postpone decisions next quarter. maybe the following quarter, not higher. now if you like to do a special with all that cash. we can keep people wondering what's coming down the pipe every three months. confidence matters. it especially matters in our economy. once we've resolved the cliff, we need long-term fiscal reduction so businesses can plan for the future. to get families and businesses certain we must agree the next few weeks on specific spendin
, and in my state, at least from two countries, spain and germany, we have been able to export -- or import jobs -- or i should say import the ability to create jobs through foreign investment in my state for the component manufacturing. so it's been a success so many ways. and maybe one other thing that ought to be emphasized at this time where some of our members and maybe more members in the other body seem to be more cynical about any sort of investment in green energy because of solyndra and other places where taxpayer money has gone in the way of grants and then there has been immediate bankruptcy so the wasting of the taxpayers' money. there is no -- absolutely no benefit from the wind energy tax credit unless you actually produce electricity from it. so it's not going to be one of these situations where taxpayer money through a tax incentive is going to go to some company and not reap the benefits of it, the end result in this case being the production of wind energy. the production tax credit for wind is working and should be a part of the effort in washington to get more americans
has been used in germany of these national manufacturing innovation hubs. and i think that is something that we are going to look to promote in a second term. >> thank you. paul friedman with every child matters. we are very, i applaud you for your comments about not having is fighting against money for children versus money for research and other vital needs. so the question is where do we find more revenue? and have you considered taxes on stock transfers, stock transactions or other kind of innovative, carbon tax, other kind of approaches were we can find new revenue so that will be possible for us to not fight amongst ourselves for resources? >> well, it's going to shock you for you and industry that i am not here to make news on new revenue. we are busy fighting right now to ensure that we have a budget agreement. it's very balanced and i think part of that balance, having enough high income revenues together with smart entitlement savings. that's the type of balance people talk about the most, but the other type of balance, that you're putting together a package
roosevelt allowed japanese americans to enlist in the fight against nazi germany, inouye and thousands of young men answered the call. he burned with desire to defend the nation that had told him and people of his background -- quote -- "you may not serve." a nation that still held thousands of japanese americans behind barbed wire fences. and when he left hawaii for the army, his father told him this country has been good to us. whatever you do, do not dishonor this country. danny on more than one occasion told stories about his army training in mississippi, about the racial segregation that he saw. and he told the story of how after he returned from world war ii, he stopped in california on the way home to hawaii, just stopped to get a haircut and was told we don't serve johanns here. -- serve japs here. he stood there in full dress uniform, his chest covered in medals, a hook in place of the arm blown apart by a german rifle dpren aid, even -- grenade, even then he had to confront hatred. there is so much that is remarkable about the life of dan inouye. the story of his service on t
he was premier of germany in the 1870's. he set it because average life expectancy was mid 50's. now in this country we're blessed to live to an average age of 80. if you're a healthy woman in america today your you're average age 100. so what does this fiscal cliff mean? it means that the gap between our revenues and our spending is clearly unsustainable. we need to find a solution before our unsustainable debt swallows our economy. some folks argue that we don't need a solution now, that we have time and space and we should stimulate the economy with more deficit spending. i think an appropriate measure of additional stimulus activities makes some sense. so i do support investing in our economy, in new infrastructure, research and development and workforce investments. as a former business guy, those are characteristics that any strong business would invest in and any strong country would invest in if we're going to grow. but that alone is not enough. and our problems which only continue to accrue and grow over the long term must be dealt with. and just like any large enterprise, t
they know when germany was going to fall, berlin? did they know when tokyo was going to fall? what happened to the german saboteurs who landed in long island during world war ii? they were captured by the f.b.i. and turned over to the military. what happened to the american citizens that were helping the german saboteurs? they were held as enemy combatants. to my good friend from kentucky, i don't doubt your passion, i don't doubt your sincerity, i doubt your judgment on these shiewps. the supreme court has spoken three different times. recently just less than six or seven years ago an american citizen was caught helping the taliban in afghanistan, and they said you could hold one of our own as an enemy combatant until the hostilities cease and that is a hard time to figure. well, let's get this right. if an american citizen helping the taliban in afghanistan kill our soldiers can be captured and held as an enemy combatant according to the supreme court, what kind of world would we live in if the al qaeda collaborator american citizen attacked us here trying to kill us on our own homeland t
